The consolidation of Iván Villar
He will end the season being the Celta goalkeeper who has played the most minutes in this championship
ANDAmong the many good sports news that Celta’s season has left behind, is the consolidation of Ivan Villar. The meta, which had to defend the goal in particularly complex sporting situations, has also added now in the successful moments of the team.
In fact, due to Rubén Blanco’s injury time, Iván Villar will end the season being the Celtic goalkeeper who has played the most minutes in this championship. It is the first time this has happened in his career.
Rubén adds 1,639 minutes distributed in 19 games, in which he conceded 27 goals and left a clean sheet five times. Iván Villar accumulates 1,689 in which he also conceded 27 goals and also did not receive as many in five games. In turn, he disputed the two Cup games. This Saturday you can enjoy Balaídos, for the first time, with an audience.
The premiere with Berizzo
Iván Villar made his debut in the First Division when he was just 19 years old. It was on May 14, 2017 in Mendizorroza against Alavés. It was Eduardo Berizzo the Celtic coach. I would no longer play an official match, with the first team, until last July, in which he played four games to replace the injured Rubén Blanco.
For that reason He also started this championship defending the frame and recovering the position a few months ago before a new injury to Mos’. Now, at 23 years old and having a very good season, he has made the final leap to compete for the position with Rubén Blanco. Two very good goalkeepers, young and a product of the quarry, who ensure stability in the position for Celta for a long time.
